I thought the best way to end 2016 would be a look back at our year.  This year has been an amazing year.  We have had a lot of fun and made so many great memories. I have selected a few pictures from each month that are my favorites from that month.  So grab some coffee and enjoy a look back at all of the fun we had in 2016.

    Looks like 2016 was awesome and I’d have to say the thing that warmed my heart most was Danny baptizing your sweet little girl. My husband had the privilege of baptizing both of our kids when they were in their early teens. What a special experience for him and to witness as a mother. Happy New Year and here’s to 2017!!!
